40 Pounds of Trouble (1962) Screening at Hollywood Heritage Museum

One of my readers tipped me off to a wonderful event coming up later this month at the Hollywood Heritage Museum.

On Sunday afternoon, January 27th, Chris Nichols, author of the excellent book WALT DISNEY'S DISNEYLAND, will give a talk on Disneyland. He'll also be available to sign copies of his book.

The afternoon will also include a screening the Universal Pictures film 40 POUNDS OF TROUBLE (1962), which features an extensive sequence filmed inside Disneyland. The movie stars Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette.

Disney historian Jim Korkis says the film "was the first and only non-Disney produced theatrical film that was ever filmed at Disneyland while Walt Disney was still alive."

I had my copy of WALT DISNEY'S DISNEYLAND signed by the author at Disneyland when it came out last September, but I'm looking forward to his talk and the movie!

The Hollywood Heritage Museum is located at 2100 N. Highland Avenue, near the Hollywood Bowl. Click here for ticket information.

For more on 40 POUNDS OF TROUBLE and its filming at Disneyland, please visit a pair of articles by Jim Korkis for MousePlanet: "The Secret Story Behind 40 Pounds of Trouble at Disneyland," Part 1 and Part 2.

Update: Tonight's Movie: 40 Pounds of Trouble (1962) at the Hollywood Heritage Museum.
